Cookin and Lookin
August 23, 2010 - Dorma Tolson
I suppose if I could pick another career, rather than my current one as newspaper editor, I would choose to be a cook. Not just any cook, mind you, I'd have to be a famous one with a TV show or a magazine to show off my culinary skills. You know... like Paula Deen, Rachel Ray or some of the other Food Network celebrities. I don't mean to imply that my cooking skills are superior, but people tell me I'm a pretty good cook, and I notice when I take dishes to potlucks or picnics, I rarely have any leftovers to take back home. Besides that, I like to cook. Because I like to cook I'm always looking for new recipes to try, thus the name of my blog, "Cookin' and Lookin'." When I'm not trying new recipes I'm looking for new ones to try. One of my favorite things to do is attempt to duplicate my favorite restaurant dishes. Recently I fixed green beans like they do at Cracker Barrel. Yum, yum. My stepdaughter, Beth, and granddaughter, Brittany, loved them. The beans even received a nod of approval from my husband, who loves to eat but is very, very hard to please. Now, I'm looking to replicate Cracker Barrel's roast beef recipe. I've found several recipes claiming to be Cracker Barrel's roast beef on the Internet, but even though I haven't tried them, they don't look quite right to me. So, if anyone out there has CB's RB recipe, please share. In the meantime I'll share the green bean recipe with you.
Cracker Barrel green beans recipe:
1/4 pound Sliced Bacon 3 cans whole green beans (14.5 oz each - do not drain liquid) 1/4 medium onion 1 teaspoon sugar 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon pepper
In a two quart sauce pan on medium heat, cook bacon until lightly brown but not crisp. After bacon has browned, add green beans. Then add salt, sugar, pepper and mix well. Place onion on top of green beans, cover with a lid and bring to a light boil. Turn heat down to low and simmer beans for 45 minutes. Cook the green beans for 45 minutes on a very low simmer to blend the flavors.
